This is the music that helped define my musical taste from childhood! Many thanks for this to my father, who has a wonderful taste for real music!
2. Nils Frahm – Human Range
A case when goosebumps run from the music! no explanation!
3. Ólafur Arnalds – Öldurót ft. SinfoniaNord, Atli Örvarsson.
And another representative of the neoclassical. This is the same music with a capital letter that penetrates very deeply.
4. 6th Borough Project – Just A Memory
One of the kindest compositions. I always listen to this track when I miss the sun and sea.
5. Sébastien Tellier – La Ritournelle
Always loved the vocal part in this track.
6. Sampha – Happens
Just beautiful and touching.
7. Zero 7 – Truth & Rights
It was difficult to single out one track from these guys. I love a lot of what they do. This is the same combination of music on which I was brought up but in a new guise. This is a track which makes you want to run to the other end of the world. Just listen to what they get up to at 3:34 minutes, and goosebumps again! But you must definitely listen to the track in full to capture this moment.
8. Son Lux – No Fate Awaits Me ft. Faux Fix
Soothing music by Son Lux. A combination of a sad but light melody. if you want to tickle the soul, then this is a must listen.
9. Tame Impala – Cause I’m A Man
A frequent visitor to my home playlist. Love their signature electric guitar sound.
10. The Black Keys – Ten Cent Pistol
One of my dreams is to drive along the coast of America listening to this track.
Makebo – You (Peace Symphonies)
Makebo is one of a new breed of Russian acts taking steps on the international stage, with recent releases on Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream and Shanti Moscow Radio. With a sound rooted in the melodic, his productions are all engaging and deeply personal as he displays once again here. Peace Symphonies launched in November 2020, the brainchild of respected artist Gorje Hewek. ‘You’ is a near eight-minute slice of gently evolving, electronic excellence built around warm chord progressions and subtle drum programming that provide the perfect base for the ethereal almost indie-esque vocal delivery. Exquisite sound design and understated melodies make this a truly compelling affair that is as much a home listening experience as it is a sunrise beach party contender.
